Cemetery Decorations

Bloomington Parks and Recreation reminds cemetery visitors of the rules and guidelines for grave decorations.

  1. Link to a two-page document with photographs of approved and unapproved types of cemetery decorations.
  2. Artificial and fresh-cut flowers and wreaths are permitted at all times in the cemetery. They must be firmly attached to the monuments or markers. No decorations may be placed on or anchored to the ground.
  3. Shepherd's hooks and glassware are not permitted at any time. All items must be placed securely on the monument so as not to present a hazard to cemetery workers or visitors.
  4. Flags placed in the cemetery the Saturday before Memorial Day will be removed four weeks after the holiday.
